How square is the oprod tab?
IMO pics tell at least as much as measurements;

For example, here are six different examples of very nice square tabs:

I’ll probably send out to the link above or purchase a op rod
No guarantee anything you buy will be better than what you already have.
I love the smell of MRT in the morning - it reminds me of . . . wet canvas."
I'm what you'd call a legend in my own mind.

Check the op rod tab for wear and check the receiver track dimensions. Also check to ensure the rod is not bent worsening the problem. There is things that can be done depending where the problem is.

I would have it fixed, sell it and buy a usgi.
What are popular with collectors? CAI receiver Garands? l don't think so. Maybe popular with recyclers, LOL. Or as a single side book end. The problems the OP is having are typical with those poor quality cast receivers.

I wouldn't put a round through that rifle for fear of eating the op rod or blowing the bolt through the receiver heel on a full op rod disconnect.

Sounds to me, the best use for that CAI receiver is for the anchor for a duck decoy.
